Our driving plans were to drive from Barcelona to Besalu, and then to a vineyard outside of Manresa and then onto our overnight pitstop in Lleida.
We picked this location based on an article which stated that it was one of the more picturesque locations in Spain, And it certainly did not disappoint.
The town has a population of about 2400 people. And its crowning gem is the romanesque point over the river Fluvia. The town is a living picture postcard, where every turn present a quaint cobbled street framed by beautiful homes.
Narrow streets crisscross the old town. Lined with some nice restaurants that serve local fare. Stone archways crown the streets as one explores them. Details are everywhere carved onto the facades of buildings dating back to the 11th century.
The town had a jewish quarter and the Monastery of Saint Paul.
We ended the day at the other end of the bridge looking onto the town with some sangria and a curious friend.
